Il Quadrello, a real Italian southerner, is made with 100% Bombino Bianco, an ancient grape native to Puglia. Aromas are intense with jasmine and white flowers. Flavours of fresh stone fruit burst on the tongue with developing notes of almond and a touch of minerality. Il Quadrello is the perfect summer tipple or on dark winter nights to conjure up memories of warmer days past. Drink now.
The Bombino Bianco grapes that make this wine come from 15-year-old vines. The vineyards sit just 100 metres above sea level. Soils here are sandy, clayish, and calcareous. Cantina La Marchesa harvests their grapes by hand towards the end of October. After destemming and crushing, the Bombino Bianco grapes are soft pressed, ready for fermentation in stainless steel tanks. The Il Quadrello spends three months ageing in the bottle before being released to the market.
Cantina La Marchesa, Puglia
Cantina La Marchese began life in 1988 when Marika and Sergio embarked on realising their dream of winemaking. Their vineyards span 15 hectares within 300 metres of their cellar. This proximity of the vineyards to the cellars allows them to move the grapes to the cellar very quickly after cutting, helping to preserve all the grape's aromas.
Bombino Bianco, perhaps more synonymous with overcropped and under flavoured blended wines from the 1960s and 1970s, deserves more credit than it currently receives. Once nicknamed Pagadebit (the debt payer) due to its generous yields, growers, like Cantina La Marchese, that aim for quality rather than quantity, are producing good quality, fragrant wines.
